Red River Wildlife Management Area at 314 acres (1.27 km2) is an Idaho wildlife management area in Idaho County near Elk City.[1] It was purchased in 1993 from Don Wilkerson who offered it to the state to preserve it in a natural, undeveloped state.[2] The property was acquired with the donations of $100,00 from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, $100,000 from Trout Unlimited, and $287,000 in mitigation funds from the Bonneville Power Administration.

The WMA includes a meadow near the South Fork of the Clearwater River.[3] White-tailed deer, moose, and elk are often found in the meadow.[4]
